Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 10 Up
Mingo, 26, is an aspiring cartoonist with a hot temper who has recently broken up with her boyfriend, an aloof musician. Despite their split, she and Jerry have decided to remain friends. X Diary chronicles their ups and downs as they transition from one phase to another. Toma's subdued manwha might appeal to older readers who could relate to and identify with the fine nuances in Mingo and Jerry's unsteady relationship. However, there's not much action. The book relies heavily on dialogue, and some translation issues make for choppy and unsure exchanges between the characters. The full-color art is sparse, with white space taking up much of each page, and rounded panels make readers feel like they are watching this drama unfold on TV, opposed to a more traditional format.
